Best of Spain & Portugal     0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2024
This tour was an excellent way to see Spain and Portugal and made even more delightful by our Tour Director Denise Lamas whose knowledge of the countries and their history and customs was exceptional as well as her kindness and friendliness to all. There were 36 on the Tour and as a solo traveller I was given a friendly welcome by all. Easter week ...read more in Spain was very special and in spite of the crowds there was an atmosphere of unity everywhere. The highlights of the tour were the visit to Seville and the perfume of the orange blossom, the snow capped Sierras and the Alhambra, the lunch with village ladies in their homes and of course the amazing Segrada Familia by Gaudi in Barcelona. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to visit Spain and Portugal.
Wonderful Spanish tour   1 , Australia, Oct 2023
Travelling with Insight was totally stress free. Our fabulous tour director saw to every little detail and his suggestions for restaurants and optional tours were spot on. The hotels we stayed in were great and our group got along really well. It was relaxing , fun and informative at the same time. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with Global Journeys and ...read more Insight for future adventures.
Splendours of Egypt guaranteed     1 , ACT, Australia, Oct 2023
Insight Vacations through Spring Tours provided a memorable 12 day, small group, Splendours of Egypt tour that included 7 days cruising on the Nile in a boat with a capacity of 120 passengers. While the MS Nile Odessa is a bit dated the river cruising experience was enjoyable, noting it is the Egyptian civilisation sites that were our primary reason ...read more for travelling to Luxor and Aswan. While a day trip to Abu Simbel (from Aswan) was an option extra - we highly recommend it - the Abu Simbel site will blow your mind - Ramses the Great (Ramses II) had a taste for grandeur. Our Tour Director was exceptional, which makes a huge difference to one’s experience. The pace of the tour was excellent - nay faster and it would have been less enjoyable and unable to spend sufficient time each site to appreciate them for what they are - marvels. Finally thank you the Hannah and the team at Global Journeys.
Interesting, packed journey through some of the stunning smaller centres of Italy   0 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2023
Our guide Federika Nandini was a delight, who kept a keen caring eye over all. Our driver was careful and managed to manoeuvre a large bus on some tight and potentially dangerous roads. Local guides were excellent. There was a considerable amount of walking each day which will test the less fit. Hilltop towns are just that and are challenging on the ...read more knees! Meals provided were usually over catered and in noisy interiors. Optional excursions were varied . Some lovely hotels were included but not able to be enjoyed as we didn’t stay long enough to enjoy.
Wonderful tour through beautiful Türkiye with the best tour director and driver.   0 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2023
Highly recommend a small-group tour with Insight Vacations. It was a worry free holiday with great accommodation and food. The tour director was fabulous and the coach was super comfortable with WiFi and bottled water.
Amazing tour through Egypt     0 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2023
Egypt was breathtaking and Insight only made it better. Our guide, Wael (an Egyptologist) was engaging and a joy to listen to. The earpieces we used were not the cheap ones and we never lost connection. I loved everything about our trip from being met at Cairo airport and being escorted through the airport to the drivers, all the staff on our ship sailing ...read more the Nile, our magnificent tour guide, Wael, who stayed with us the entire trip, the accommodation at Marriot Cairo ( an experience in itself) and of course the temples and pyramids of this incredible country. Highly recommend.
Great UK and Ireland holiday!!     0 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2023
It was really a well organised trip, right from the very beginning with Global Journeys and Georgie, right through the getting them to organise all the flights and accommodation before and after… it all made it work so well! The bus driver Alf and the tour director Dave, really cared about all of the great bunch on the tour. We were various ages and ...read more all got along really well!! The tour director thought about what we were seeing and extra touches that made it memorable! They really looked after those of us who had ability problems during the trip always!!! Going above and beyond!!!

The accommodation was clean and some were family run and a touch of nostalgia, made it all perfect!! We had many organised meals, we found that such a help because the trip was jam packed with so much to see and do, it was very welcomed!! The one thing I would ad for the tour director is that I’m sure there would always be some who would welcome to be told about any Aurora sightings, no matter what time of the night!!!! So as not to miss this spectacular sight!!! The trip was a 22 day through England, Scotland ( magnificent Scottish highlands and Orkney Islands) Northern Ireland , beautiful Ireland, Wales, and back to England… all so magnificent!!! We really loved the trip and are very glad we chose Insight and Global Journeys…thanks to all involved!!
An experience beyond words   0 , CA, United States, Sep 2023
Insight vacations is truly a remarkable company. Absolutely flawless from beginning to end. Our tour director, Madeleine was courteous, friendly knowledgeable and very well organized. Everything was thought of in advance and perfectly executed. Ned, the driver of the coach, was likewise friendly, courteous and extremely skilled. There is nothing ...read more we can suggest that would make the experience any better. Great hotels, dinners, excursions and overall itinerary. Once again, it was flawless.
Best of Spain and Portugal with Insight Vacations   0 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2023
Great tour, Insight vacations in Europe back to its best. 10/10. Spain and Portugal were amazing - the tour just got better and better. Excellent tour guide, great hotels, can't speak more highly of this tour.
Country Roads of Switzerland-August 29th, 2023   2 , kuala lumpur, Malaysia, Aug 2023
We had a great time on this holiday trip. The pace was good and well organized. The scenic drive along the country roads is incredibly scenic with stunning views of the snowcapped Swiss Alps, romantic lakes, waterfalls, glaciers, vineyards, green pastures, old towns, and charming hillside villages. On the second day, we had truly a wonderful experience ...read more getting up to the summit of Mount Stanserhorn aboard an open top funicular cable car and the opportunity to take great photo shots of the wonderful mountain scenery. Among the stunningly snowcapped Swiss Alps, the iconic Matterhorn and the world famous Eiger Mountain offer spectacular views and lifetime experiences. Overall, this was a memorable holiday, complete with exciting train rides, cable cars, luxury cruise of Lake Geneva and spacious touring coach on our drive covering most of the major Swiss cities. We commenced our 14-day trip on 29/08 and had expected the weather to be cool and clear but sadly most of the days were hot and sunny.
Small bus tour of Spain Portugal and Morocco   0 , New Zealand, Aug 2023
A great group of travellers. 13 of us on a 48 seater bus so we all had a window seat! Our tour guide Scott was very well organised, and knew the history of the countries. Nothing was a bother. Our drivers were very experienced. The hotels on the whole were very good with big rooms. One hotel had smaller rooms but as I was on my own it wasn't a prob ...read morelem.
Wonderful tour through Normandy   1 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2023
I couldn’t fault this tour. From the tour guide to the accommodation. It was my first Insight tour but it won’t be my last. More expensive than other tours but more inclusions and 5 star accommodation.
Truly magical   1 , VIC, Australia, Aug 2023
I don't have the words to describe how wonderful this trip was every day brought a new highlight. Our tour guide (Matt) was every engaging and insightful. Only downside was it is VERY expensive more so than I expected but even that didn't spoil the experience nor beauty.
Amazing Scandinavia   1 , WA, Australia, Aug 2023
We have just completed the 20 day Grand Scandinavia tour with Insight Vacations which departed Copenhagen on 13th Aug 2023 and ended in Oslo on 1st Sep 2023. It was an amazing trip with a good mix of everything in it. Be prepared with a good pair of walking shoes - but well worth it. The weather was great with some rain on only one day. It's still summer ...read more up there so don't overdo it with the woolies. The hotels were of a high standard and very comfortable except for the Hilton Stockholm. The included meals were good as well. The Optional Extras were good as well and well worth it. Some did not happen due to logistical issues but was not the end of the world as there were plenty of other things to gawk at. Overall a great trip and definitely a MUST DO.
Eastern Canada with Insight Vacations   0 , QLD, Australia, Aug 2023
We enjoyed the tour, our first with Insight Vacations in Canada and America. I feel that Insight Vacations standards have dropped - not totally but no airport pick up or drop off's, then a hotel change at the end. We paid months earlier, then came the notification about the change from a $700 night hotel to a $168 night hotel.
Good tour of France   0 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2023
This was our 9th Insight Vacations trip. On the positive side we saw some great places and TD was very informative and insightful.
There were places like Nice that were big cities and not necessarily the country roads charm we expected. A bit slower paced than what we're used to and some hotels were disappointing.
Italian Escapade   0 , MA, United States, Jul 2023
This was truly an escapade! You see a LOT of Italy in a very short span of time. It is true that there is a good amount of time spent riding on the coach, but the views and scenery are worth while. Our tour guide was excellent and our driver was simply fantastic, even on the narrow roads. We did visit in the summer, which is not the optimum time ...read more to visit Rome due to the very high temperatures. The day we toured Rome it was 97 (36) degrees!

The local experts were very good and helped to make each place come alive. A few seemed to be less about the history and culture and more about making sales, but I guess that is to be expected. The hotel accommodations were small but functional and it is true that the Italians don't really care for air conditioning, so if you are accustomed to an icy cool room, you need to rethink! The breakfasts were ok but nothing to write home about and stopping at the truck stops for lunch was less than exciting in terms of Italian cuisine! Global Journeys was easy to work with and I had excellent correspondence with Rachael, who patiently answered each of my questions and concerns.
Unforgettable tour through Normandy Brittany & Loire     0 , QLD, Australia, Jul 2023
Another fantastic adventure with Insight Vacations, this one through historical Normandy and Brittany, and the magical Loire Valley. Our professional tour director, Laurent, was outstanding as was our driver Stefaan. We choose Insight Vacations for their great itineraries, exceptional tour crew, choice of accommodation, and their comfortable, extra ...read more leg room, coaches.

We have already recommended Insight Vacations and Global Journeys to a number of our friends.
Grecian Fables - Idyllic   0 , VIC, Australia, Jun 2023
Our follow-on tour with Insight (prior trip was the Country Roads of Croatia) met with our expectations, albeit Europe is very expensive and will impact on our decision regarding future travel. Asia looks more attractive. Meteora was a stand out. The coach trips were at times, quite long. The cruise on a mid sized ship was terrific, not overcrowded ...read more and you could enjoy cruising. The islands were very nice. Insight needs to be more upfront with excursion costs pre booking so travellers know the real cost of the tours upfront. Further, we recommended to Insight that travellers wear name tags. It’s to difficult to remember 35 names in a short period of time.
Great experience UK Ireland   1 , Feilding , New Zealand, Jun 2023
Great trip. Well organized by Georgie and Global Journeys. Insight ran a very good tour and Jim the Director was very good. Made the trip. Alf the driver was fantastic. Real gentlemen and a very good driver. We will be booking with Global and Insight again - Europe next trip!
